*WTF Files* George Lucas: Hollywood Wouldn't Fund All-Black Cast

Doesn't surprise me - this world is STILL Cray.

Legendary director George Lucas said he ran into some problems with his latest film, Red Tails, because Hollywood wouldn't fund the movie because of its all black cast.

"This has been held up for release since 1942 since it was shot, I've been trying to get released ever since,it's because it's an all-black movie. There's no major white roles in it at all...I showed it to all of them and they said no. We don't know how to market a movie like this"

The noteworthy film tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen who fought in World War II, played by Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Ne-Yo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man and more.
